Great Attorney
Scott and his firm represented my company drafting NDAs and negotiating intellectual property rights. He was extremely attentive and we were very happy with the successful outcome.

Helpful and pragmatic lawyer
We received the consultation and support we expected, so not much more to say, than to recommend Scott.

Extraordinarily intelligent, competent, and compassionate. Amazing experience.
Scott contacted me with alacrity after I posted about my legal issue on Thumbtack. I chose him to handle my case out of the numerous lawyers that contacted me, because he gave me a game plan of how we could proceed, and was extremely expeditious and responsive whenever I spoke to him. I am extremely grateful to him and beyond happy that I chose him. The legal issue that I needed his assistance with regarded someone filing a restraining order against me accusing me of cyber-bullying her during a period of extreme mental instability I was weathering, (I have bipolar I disorder, and was experiencing psychotic delusions regarding this person). I was very frightened that this restraining order would succeed, because it would undoubtedly affect my future in graduate school admissions and in future employment. Scott deftly came up with a defense for the first hearing, and the case was dismissed. The complainant then filed a second restraining order with more allegations of misconduct, and once again fearful that the restraining order would pass, Scott used his amazing diplomatic skills to negotiate a deal with the complainant's attorney such that an automatic restraining order would be put in place if I ever contacted her again, but that I was free to go and nothing would be filed or passed so long as I refrained from future contact. I'm extraordinarily thankful that Scott negotiated this deal, and it's taken an immense weight off my mind. I'm proud to say that I've received the necessary medical attention, and am now stable and have not contacted this person, making good on the wonderful opportunity Scott has afforded me; (I was low on a specific chemical I need in my bloodstream and we've remediated the issue). Scott has been a fantastic presence throughout this process, also providing advice and emotional support related to how to handle this situation with my university, as the complainant was also a student there. Scott is a wonderfully knowledgable person, and he is not only insightful about legal matters, but personal issues as well. He is a very kind and thoughtful person, and it has been my pleasure to work with him. He is truly great not only on a legal level, but also in the dimension of kindness and morality. Whenever I was tense, his warm presence and witty conversational skills always ameliorated my distress. He has truly saved me from what could've been a much more difficult and bleak future, and I am forever indebted to him. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone struggling with a legal issue.

attorney review
he was incredibly accessible and knowledgeable. He walked us through the process step by step and helped us understand the process of prepping for mediation. He was invaluable in helping us understand what and where to access the information we needed to provide to help the case.

Scott is excellent
Scott was efficient, smart and very likeable and believable in court and with the judge. He is all business with no ego that plays well with the judge and the client. I would highly recommend Scott for litigation strategy and execution.

Advocating for my son with autism
Some universities do not have much of experience with the needs of students on the autism spectrum. Scott and his team provided a great support to communicate an effective approach and transfer my son to a university closer to home which made it a win win situation for everyone. My son is happy, getting good grades and the university staff know that we are always there to help in any form or way.

Family Trust Dispute Resolved
I contacted Scott Lesowitz because of a family dispute over the trust left by the mother. I am Power of Attorney for one of the sisters who suffers from dementia. The other sister and brother could not resolve their issues over the use and distribution of funds and the brother wanted to sue. Scott was able to negotiate a settlement acceptable to all parties through working with the other law firm involved and by educating the brother about why a lawsuit was not in his best interest. Throughout this process, Scott was very communicative and his considerable negotiation and conciliation skills saved this family thousands of dollars and prolonged distress. I cannot express how grateful I am to have had the benefit of his services.
